As an architect, then writer, poet, critic, editor, and visual artist, my work has always centred on connecting, through language and image, story and idea. I’m fascinated by our collective determination to build, reshape, and restore from fragments a narrative about the world and ourselves in it, and how we imagine the incomplete, unreliable story with the unknowable end. Through manipulation, layering, weaving, and stitchery, my work scrambles perceptions and shifts the view to offer a re/vision, to spur questions, to reveal the flaws and gaps and inadequacies of a man-made history, so that we might re-see — rather than blindly accept as accurate — our text and image inheritance.
